The primary purpose of this paper is to review the primary methods of PRRS control and assess the applications, advantages, and disadvantages of each one. Conclusion: Based on reports from the field, it may not be possible to control all cases of PRRS with a single strategy. Therefore, developing systematic plans involving a group of strategies may be more effective, particularly in large herds. Tables 2 and 3 describe such an approach, highlighting critical decision-making steps and listing potential control options to proceed. Again, this is provided only as an example, and practitioners need to establish control programs based on herd-specific data. However, we believe that if you take a systematic approach to PRRS control, you can obtain positive results under a wide range of farm conditions.
